Steyr 100 Around The World 1934 Reisch/Hahmann by Autocult
Promotion Tour Proves Reliability
1934 Max Reisch (born in Kufstein 1912) was, due to his extensive motorbike
rides into all parts of the world, someone of note in his home country Austria.
Fully aware of his position he asked the company Steyr-Daimler-Puch AG for
material and financial support for his next trip.
of a motorbike they offered him a car for his trip; simultaneously to Reisch’s request
the new passenger car Steyr 100 was launched and the opportunity occurred to
combine the trip with a major promotional tour. These thoughts were personally submitted
to the young Max Reisch by the company management during his visit on October
2, 1934. He took up the offer and had the rear of the new expedition car changed
according to his ideas to a pick-up version. On April 23, 1935 Max Reisch
started the long trip with his partner Helmuth Hahmann. Starting from Vienna
they went to Palestine from there they travelled via Syria to Iraq, Iran and
Afghanistan. Via Pakistan, India, Burma, Thailand and Laos their trip led them
to Vietnam and China. After 14 months they arrived at their intended final
destination Shanghai but they decided to continue their journey. During the
passage on a ship to Japan and to the USA both men and their reliable Steyr could
rest before they headed to Mexico. Finally, Reisch and Hahmann entered German
ground after a passage on a ship in Bremerhaven.
only then, they became aware of the fact that their initial planned trip to
China had become an entire circumnavigation of the world!
